Track Of The Day: Gif – ‘Lumière’

A gnarly take-down of the double standards and inappropriate behaviour women and girls often face in public, Dublin trio gif have shared their debut single ‘Lumière’. The track is inspired by the need to make their own shows a safe space for women and non-binary people, and the trio use their catchy, indie-punk tunes to get this important message across.

Formed in October 2018, the Irish teenagers – aged between 17 and 19 – have adopted a strong DIY ethic, self-funding everything they’ve achieved so far. This includes headline shows in Dublins biggest venues such as Workman’s and Whelan’s, and recently being added to Spotify’s “An Alternative Éire” playlist, which showcases new Irish alternative sounds.

Debut single ‘Lumière’ is accompanied by a humourous music video Directed by Eleanor Rogers which features shots of the band playing their instruments, as an intense situation unfolds between a young woman and her (unwanted) admirer on webcam.
